Recovery Rally celebrates recovery, raises awareness about addiction

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – The Freedom Through  Recovery Rally was held at Circus Square Park in downtown Bowling Green Saturday.

The event kicked off with a march from the Riverwalk to the park. Live music, food and community agencies such as Goodwill and the Bowling Green-Warren County Health Department hosted booths.

There was also a memorial “wall” where family members and friends could sign their names to remember those who lost their lives battling substance abuse.

Rachel Wheat, the coordinator of the event, said substance abuse is one of the leading causes of death in the United States. This is the first year of the Freedom Through Recovery Rally in Bowling Green.
